NDO - “Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times”, the most comprehensive and complete biography of the great Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin has been translated and introduced to Vietnamese readers.

The book is published by Omega+ in collaboration with Dan Tri Publishing House.

This is the third book on world-famous composers released by Omega+, after Mozart and Beethoven, in the "Omega+" Music Bookcase.

The "Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times" work was written by Professor Alan Walker.

The work has won important awards such as Classical Music Book of the Year 2018, voted by The Sunday Times (UK) and as one of The Economist's Best Books of 2018.

Based on ten years of research and a vast cache of primary sources located in archives in Warsaw, Paris, London, New York, and Washington, D.C., Alan Walker’s monumental Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times is the most comprehensive biography of the great Polish composer to appear in English in more than a century.

Walker’s work is a corrective biography, intended to dispel the many myths and legends that continue to surround Chopin. Fryderyk Chopin is an intimate look into a dramatic life; of particular focus are Chopin’s childhood and youth in Poland, which are brought into line with the latest scholarly findings, and Chopin’s romantic life with George Sand, with whom he lived with nine years.

Comprehensive and engaging, and written in highly readable prose, the biography wears its scholarship lightly: this is a book suited as much for the professional pianist as it is for the casual music lover. Just as he did in his definitive biography of Liszt, Walker illuminates Chopin and his music with unprecedented clarity in this magisterial biography, bringing to life one of the nineteenth century’s most confounding, beloved, and legendary artists.
